Does /var/log/nova/compute.log contain records

Loading compute driver 'novadocker.virt.docker.DockerDriver' ERROR nova.virt.driver [-] Unable to load the virtualization driver
TRACE nova.virt.driver ImportError: No module named pbr.version

Did you attempt to install and start docker ?

Reading logs can help resolve the issue. Check your "/var/log/nova/nova-compute.log".

Depending on what drivers and configuration you use, you might want to check the following two issues:

firewall_driver = nova.virt.libvirt.firewall.NoopFirewallDriver should be changed to: firewall_driver=nova.virt.firewall.NoopFirewallDriver

Also, #compute_driver=libvirt.LibvirtDriver should be changed to: compute_driver = nova.virt.libvirt.LibvirtDriver
